Abstract:Intelligence, whether hereditary or acquired, has been the subject of discussion since the beginning of time. Multiple intelligences have been in existence for thousands of years and the use of these various capabilities can greatly impact a persons thinking, feelings, and habits. Based upon previous studies and experiences on multiple intelligences, this paper attempts to shed light on the topic from a global perspective to clarify the stereotypes regarding intelligence which are attached to people of different countries, cultures, and genders. Research has identified a relationship between the domains of multiple intelligences such as interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic intelligences, leadership, and demographic characteristics such as, age, gender and ethnicity among various populations and professions. Using literature and secondary sources, the authors provide a view of multiple intelligences from a global perspective along with a theoretical framework. Studies seem to indicate that despite the existing stereotypes people of all backgrounds and cultures have similar levels of intelligences. The paper concludes by offering a discussion on the skills of social intelligence as well as suggestions on respecting and understanding each others differences. The literature and content can be useful for clarifying stereotypes, management selection, as well as training and development in todays global corporations that are competing in a highly complex world.
